Human Services

You have to experience it.

New England charm, state-of-the-art facilities and a welcoming community create a campus you’ll be happy to call home.

Many current students will tell you it was their first visit to our campus that confirmed their decision to attend Fitchburg State. When you set foot on our beautiful campus you will know pretty quickly if we are the right fit for you.

Getting Here

Fitchburg State University is located in a residential section of Fitchburg, the urban center of North Worcester County. It's approximately 25 miles north of Worcester, 50 miles west of Boston and 15 miles south of New Hampshire. The compact campus of 32 buildings on 48 acres is easily accessible by car, bus or train from all areas of New England.

The Admissions Office is located at 280 Highland Avenue in the Anthony Building. To reach the office, you must enter at the intersection of Highland Avenue and Pearl Street (Campus Pizza is on the corner) since Highland Avenue is not a through-street. Admissions has reserved parking spaces in front of the Anthony Building. Additional spots may be found in the Ross Parking lot, if the spots in front of the Anthony Building are all taken upon your arrival.
